thatguyoverthere70: What do you love about America? The mountains? The buildings? Not the environment, of course. Certainly not the government. How about loving the people of America for a change?


I love that the GOP has given up on the black vote and is working on the hispanic vote.
"What can we do to help?"
"Give more money"

BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH HAHAHAHA AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Nabb1: vartian: Dancin_In_Anson: they are "dependent on government" and "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing,"

Is this an inaccurate statement?

No. I believe peopled are entitled to those things. It is farking ludicrous to even entertain the thought that 47% of the country agrees with me.

No, they aren't. You're not entitled to anything else from anyone else. Providing for those who cannot provide for themselves is charity, and there's nothing wrong with helping people. But no one has a right to demand the government provide them anything. "A government that has the power to give you something has the power to take it away." - Thomas Jefferson. If you can provide yourself with the necessities in life, you have no right to demand others do so for you.


The notion that the private sector will take care of social welfare is laughable. The private sector has the opportunity to do that by paying living wages. Good luck having the money to buy food, shelter, and health insurance if you work at McDonald's or Walmart. Hell, you can work at both plus Target and still not earn a livable wage. There are private charities doing great things, but food banks, free clinics, and homeless shelters will never completely cover the demand. Take away charitable deductions, as Republicans would do, and you have an even bigger problem.

semiotix: A METRIC FARK-TON OF THAT 47% ARE POOR, RECENTLY UNEMPLOYED REPUBLICANS OR RED-STATE RETIREES WHO USED TO BE VOTING FOR YOU UNTIL YOU SHIAT ALL OVER THEM JUST NOW.


Eh, my grandfather (who recently passed away) probably would have voted for Romney anyway. He was nearly completely dependent on Medicare, especially at the end, and Social Security to get by after having worked extremely hard all his life. He was still going off about how bad things like government run healthcare would be for America. God love him.

Funk Brothers: I find it amusing that the Romney tape filmed in May took until mid-September to be shown. The Democrats are fighting a losing battle. The Democrats are pulling the few straws they have left. They know their poll numbers from the convention bump are declining and Romney is closing the gap. When the October Surprise comes around, Obama will be doomed.

This is 1980 all over again and it seems a Carter is involved in this candidacy.

bgilmore5: The notion that the private sector will take care of social welfare is laughable.



My response to right-wingers who tout this is "What's stopping them from doing it now?" Churches are already tax exempt. Why do we still have homelessness, and people with mental illnesses living in alleys, and starving kids? The private sector can't even FILL THE GAP left where government organizations fall short, and we're to believe the private sector could shoulder the entire burden if the government programs were cut?

skullkrusher: spongeboob: skullkrusher: spongeboob: skullkrusher: your nearest workhouse. You're supposed to hate those

You mean the way prison is supposed to be horrible so that people don't ever want to go back? Because that is so much better than providing job training and treatment for substance abuse.

since I have no idea wtf you're talking about or what I said has to do with substance abuse treatment, I can't say whether I mean it that way or not.


Well it made sense in my head.

When you said your nearest workhouse. You're supposed to hate those I read that as though you thought that there should be workhouses and that conditions in them should be so bad that people would not want to go to them. Upon farther review I guess I jumped to conclusions.

However it is very common for people to state that prisons are to cushy and that people should be punished not rehabilatated It was wrong for me to assumet that you agreed with this sentiment from your comment.

well, prison should be harsh and miserable. It's farking prison, not summer camp. However, any rehabs that can make you less likely to wind up back there should be attempted for the sole selfish purpose of benefiting society in the long run


So would you be cool with bringing back the stocks, how about whipping, branding, amputation etc.?

InmanRoshi: Mostly the elderly, and working families who get exempt from paying income taxes because they qualify for enough deductions through things like housing, marriage and child deductions that their liability is net zero.


Those no good bums! Who told them to utilize tax deductions...like Romney?

beta_plus: bootman: Romney told the contributors that "women are open to supporting me," but that "we are having a much harder time with Hispanic voters, and if the Hispanic voting bloc becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American voting block has in the past, why, we're in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation."

That's some choice racism right there that is.

So facts are racist.

Romney could come out and say he loves raping boys, and the he'll still get the vote of angry white men. The problem is that this isn't going to sit well with independents, and it's going to put renewed pressure on him to release his tax returns now that he's derided half of Americans who aren't paying enough income taxes for his liking.
 
2012-09-17 09:57:37 PM  
Calling 47% of the electorate moochers who pay no taxes and who have an overly developed sense of entitlement is an interesting political strategy.

Talking about other people not paying taxes while not releasing his own taxes (especially 2009) seems an especially canny move.

This story seems to be gathering steam and even in an election season already rife with gaffes, lies, blunders and goofs galore it stands out.

Found this part interesting...

If it looks like I'm going to win, the markets will be happy. If it looks like the president's going to win, the markets should not be terribly happy. It depends of course which markets you're talking about, which types of commodities and so forth, but my own view is that if we win on November 6th, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We'll see capital come back and we'll see-without actually doing anything-we'll actually get a boost in the economy.

Faith based economics, apparently.

Simply by not being Obama the markets will rise in anticipation of Mitt's brilliance or something.

Good to have a plan, I guess.

RyogaM: Hey, guess what Mitt, some of those 47% of Americans who pay no income taxes? Those people you say think "they are victims" and "can't live without the govt.?" Well, uh, guess what?

Some of them regularly vote Republican.

That's right, not every Republican voter is rich enough to pay income taxes. Yes, they pay other taxes, like SSI, sales taxes, property taxes. But not every Republican also pays income taxes. You just said those people are pretty much worthless, so, great job.


Here's the thing that might save Mitt with his base - none of them think THEY are in the 47% that Mitt is talking about. It's OTHER people who won't work and would rather mooch off the hardworking REAL citizens of the U.S. of A. They won't register the scorn Mitt heaped in their direction because they, are just temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

I pray that he does. Be honest, Mitt. Be the elitist prig that you are and keep spouting your utter disdain for the poor, the middle class, folks on Medicare, folks on Social Security. Keep hammering that point home until millions of Republicans finally wake up and realize, shiat, you're talking about them, too! You're not just pissing on urban black welfare queens, you're sticking your little white dick up the asses of Republicans who benefit from government programs, too.

No, it's a statement that can pretty accurately separate the two political parties at this point. If you disagree or agree with it, it's the 10,000 addendums to it that you unconsciously add to make it your argument palatable that defines where you are on the political spectrum.

Coupla things:
1) His comment about 47% wanting handouts, feeling entitled etc. shows an incredible disdain for nearly half the population of the country. Him saying this, and clearly believing it, shows that he: is a bad leader; has no respect for half the country; is an elitest asshole. (Imagine how you'd feel about your boss bad-mouthing half of your co-workers like that....You'd lose respect for him, wouldn't you?)

2) Him saying this... "I have inherited nothing. There is a perception, 'Oh, we were born with a silver spoon, he never had to earn anything and so forth.' Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon, which is the greatest gift you can have: which is to get born in America."
...shows that he's a delusional, self-aggrandizing, asshole. Yeah, going to the best private prep schools in the country and having a dad who was an ex-governor and spending Vietnam in PARIS for god's sake, was very bootstrappy of you Mitt. Fark. YOU.

But hey, at least we forced your mom to give birth to you even though she can't afford to support you. You don't get food at school because we cut funding to school lunch programs? And we hate Obamacare even though it provides you with health care despite the fact that you are a child who, through no fault of your own, has a pre-existing condition? And you've decided you want to go to college so you can get a real job and won't be poor all your life but can't afford it because we cut funding for tuition loans? Oh well.

Real estate and associated industries are now a hugely inflated percentage of the GDP and the population has personal debt levels rivaling America at the peak of their bubble.
